Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted July 24th through July 28th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“A majority of voters now fundamentally believe that the very federal government which exists to serve and protect citizens is no longer on their side. They see the government as too large, too invasive, and as an obstacle to their living the American dream. Nearly-two thirds of sought-after Hispanic voters agree. This represents a major shift in the political landscape,” said Mark Meckler, former CEO of Parler and President of Convention of States Action. “The only way to fix this seemingly-impossible problem is an Article V Convention of States, which polling also shows is supported by a huge majority of Americans. Working together, a Convention of States will empower states to reign in the federal government, but the brakes on its growth, and end ‘permanent Washington’.”
